Famous quotes containing the word part:

    “If Washington were President now, he would have to learn our ways or lose his next election. Only fools and theorists imagine that our society can be handled with gloves or long poles. One must make one’s self a part of it. If virtue won’t answer our purpose, we must use vice, or our opponents will put us out of office, and this was as true in Washington’s day as it is now, and always will be.”
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    The part I remember best is the beginning.
    Jean Racine (1639–1699)
